Multicolor Rug

Pin It
I had some leftover wool of various colors tangled up in a mess. Using these I made squares of different sizes and joined them together to form a colorful rug.

I wanted to make the edges broader using black wool but I ran out of the color. Also, I lost interest and just dropped the idea and left it as such. May be some other time I will finish it.

Pattern for a simple square motif
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
dc = double crochet

Ch 5; join with a sl st to form a ring.

1st Rnd: Ch 3, dc in ring (ch 3, 3 dc in ring) 3 times; ch 1, half dc in top of starting chain.

2nd Rnd: Ch 3, dc in space formed, *dc in next 3 dc, make 2 dc, 3 ch, 2 dc in the next space. Repeat from * around, ending with 2 dc in same place as first dc, ch 1, half dc in top of starting chain.

3rd Rnd Onwards: Ch 3, dc in space just formed, *dc in each dc, in corner space make 2 dc, ch 3, and 2 dc. Repeat from * around. Join as before.

Repeat the 3rd round until you reach the desired size. Fasten off.

Make such motifs of desired size and join together.

Bead Embroidery in Salwar Top

Pin It
My newly stitched salwar looked very simple and plain, so I thought of doing some embroidery work in it using the beads and sequins which were lying around without any use for quite some time.

I think I have done a good job.

Crochet Purse with Bead Embroidery

Pin It

This crochet purse is big enough to hold my cellphone, keys and money. It is quite easy to make too. I got the basic pattern from here and adapted it.

I used beads to embroider a flower on it. The result is a cute purse.

You can line the purse with fabric and add zipper if you wish but I haven't done it yet. You can get the tutorial for lining a crocheted bag from here.
